So I use Korn shell (which I do). Which has another PATH environment. The
problem is, that there are conflicting software versions on your system,

Then your HOWTO will perish miserably, as do most HOWTOs. You have to
cover  each and every eventuality in any HOWTO, which is why I hate and
despise any HOWTO, from anyone.

Quanah's patches cause my Openldap to SIGSEGV; Quanah's patches are for

As for up2date, does White Hat have it? Run it and see what happens, as
